Faience-style Scarab


Beautifully hand carved Faience-style Egyptian scarab beetle.

Egyptian Faience is a glazed non-clay ceramic material. It is composed mainly of quartz with amounts of lime and natron or plant ash. The body is coated with soda-lime silica glaze. Adding different metals and their oxides causes the appearance of different colour. Faience was used not as an inexpensive substitute for costly materials, but for its association with light and re-birth.
